WE ARE THE FALLEN'S DEBUT SINGLE 'BURY ME ALIVE' HITS DIGITAL DOMAIN ON FEBRUARY 2nd
Ex-Evanescence Members And American Idol Vocalist Carly Smithson Comprise Vital New Rock Fivesome
Band's First U.S. Tour Kicks Off With H.I.M. On March 26th NEW YORK, NY, January 26, 2010—

Universal Republic Records' We Are The Fallen, one of rock's most buzzed about new groups, will unleash their first single, "Bury Me Alive," exclusively via the digital domain on February 2nd. The iconic fivesome is comprised of the original members of multi-platinum trailblazing band Evanescence, guitarists Ben Moody and John LeCompt along with drummer Rocky Gray, joined by charismatic American Idol finalist Carly Smithson on vocals. Acclaimed bassist Marty O'Brien (Disturbed and Static-X, among others) rounds out We Are The Fallen's unique sound.

The group is already preparing to give fans a live taste of the reportoire fueling their upcoming Universal Republic debut album, due out later in the year - hitting the road in support of Finnish rock stalwarts H.I.M. The extensive, 28 city tour launches in Philadelphia, PA, on March 26th, hurtling through multiple major cities such as Boston, MA, on March 28th, Cleveland, OH, on April 1st, Chicago IL, on April 9th, Los Angeles, CA, on April 23rd, and winding down in New York City on May 7th.

Guitarist Ben Moody has been publicly crediting the group's unique chemistry as the driving force behind We Are The Fallen, describing Carly Smithson's role as a 'true partner,' and a key component to We Are The Fallen's overall sound. Moody left the platinum-plus breakthrough rock act Evanesence in 2003, and has since co-written major hits for Chris Daughtry and Kelly Clarkson among others. Evanescence's groundbreaking 2003 album, Fallen, spent an incredible 43 weeks on the Billboard Top Ten Albums Chart, selling 15 million copies worldwide, and 7 million + albums in the U.S. alone.

For Smithson, We Are The Fallen completes her dream - after exiting American Idol - of becoming a creative force in a 'vital' band environment. Carly Smithson was a sixth place finisher during Season 7 of the landmark television series American Idol, duly recognized for having one of the hit shows most loyal fan bases. The fiery singer's 'elimination' sent shockwaves through the 'Idol' blogger nation, with her acclaimed performances on the 2008 American Idol Tour cementing her current reputation as one of rock's most formidable female voices.

Singer Smithson added, "As an artist I have never been happer. Creatively, musically visually, and on a comedic level we are united and together on the same page. We are a family.
